Subject: WIND RIVER (no spoilers)
The massive snowstorm that threatens Wyoming's already frozen WIND RIVER
reservation is just a head-fake (possibly owing to the story's basing on
"true events"). Instead, the movie follows the investigation -- mostly
outdoors -- of a grisly and heart-wrenching assault on a young Native
American woman. Ranger/hunter Jeremy Renner leads the pursuit,
delivering epigrams both pithy and sententious, and there's a moralizing
end-title that's almost puzzling. But, here, the story is the story,
and it's in expert -- if frostbitten - hands. Solidly recommended.
